"I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend, Lucky to have been where I've been, Lucky to be coming home again"

  There are times when I get weighed down by things that I shouldn't... Things that, sure, deserve a look from  me, but don't really mean as much as the things that make me lucky.

Some examples of what I think are....

I really need to lost 40 lbs to make to MY goal weight - not the one that lapband doctor put me at, which is an additional 50 ontop of the 40. Geez.

I need a tummy tuck and  boob job. And my "bat arms" and jiggly thighs. Ok, a full body lift.

That money is tight.

I wish I had a friend down here - the one I had is moving.

That I could decorate our house with no expenses spared.

How I wish I had a green thumb to fix up our backyard instead of looking at a bunch of sandy-dirt and weeds.

  And then it hits me. - I'm LUCKY. Like truely blessed in this life!

I've already lost 35 lbs, and my self-esteem is higher than it's been in years.
I have a husband who wouuld walk through hell to be with me - and we're coming up on six years of marriage.

My husband is alive and well - some (ex) military spouses aren't as lucky.

We have a (rental) roof over our heads, and I know I'll have it fixed up to where I like it at some point.

I'm blessed to have a phone that keeps me in contact with family and friends since we're out of state. And the  blogosphere has brought many wonderful people in my life these last six years.

I have pets that love me unconditionally.

I'm healthy.

My yard may not be beautiful and green, but damnit, I'm trying.

I get to smile - even if it's through some tears along the way - I'm going to show my little teeth and big gums to the world.... I'm a lucky girl.


  1. Why is it that it's always so easy to point out the bad than it is with the good? Glad you're looking at the glass half full :)

  2. Good luck if you get a tummy tuck...I wrote an informative post about it if you're interested.

  3. Aw, girl--I love you! Seriously, you always bring a smile to my face. And I think that you? Are one hell of a lucky girl :)


  4. Thanks for this. It's so easy to get caught up in negative thoughts and forget how absolutely blessed we are! Your husband sounds wonderful.
